The Board of the University of Abuja Teaching Hospital has inaugurated three key projects with direct impact on the care of patients and welfare of staff with a pledge of more projects before the end of the year. The projects include a new dialysis unit with a capacity for ten patients at a time, the Administrative complex expansion and renovation as well as putting to use a 25-seater Coaster bus for staff.
Speaking at the events, the Chairman of the Board, Dr. Sam Sam Jaja said the new dialysis unit which ranked among the best in the country, will not only enhance patients’ care but also job satisfaction for the staff of the unit. The Chairman emphasized the need for careful handling of the equipment for optimal performance. Dr. Jaja noted that the renovated and expanded Administrative Complex would provide improved environment for staff to work optimally while the 25-seater bus would ease the movement of staff from one location to another especially on official and social events. The Board commended the Top Management Committee of the Hospital for the courage to undertake the projects in the face of very scarce resources and also appreciated the leaderships of house unions and associations for their co-operation.
Earlier, the Chief Medical Director, Professor Bissallah Ekele, had told the Chairman that the projects were in line with the directive and desire of the Board.
